government and where you spend. >> every time in recent american history, we have run this experiment of big government, big spending, big entitlements, big taxes. it has led to economic catastrophe. it's led to huge amounts of burden on the american people. >> bill: what economic catastrophe. >> ever since the beginning of the great society as you pointed out trillions of dollars that began the big uptick in deficit spending. some presidents have spent more than others, okay? >> bill: right. >> every time we have run the far left progressive experiment of dog out money whether it's entitlement programs, bill, whether it's going into the inner city and pumping god knows how many hundreds of billions into education, every time we have run those experiments, the exact opposite effect has happened. not only have the poor not been elevated out of poverty, but you have also perpetuated this cult of dependency and victim hood. >> bill: that's pretty true. what you are say something true. >> in the mackenzie survey you are talking about rich is getting richer and poorer getting poorer. that's the f
passed by unanimous consent in the senate. >> the big difference is we have a much, much more ideological and left wing liberal president now than we had in bill clinton who was much more practical about this. president clinton acknowledged and accepted the proposition that we ought to get on a path to a balanced budget. >> liberals with long memories cite the degree to which the house speaker, newt gingrich then, john boehner today, exercised control over their own caucuses. scot lilly, now a senior fellow at the center for american progress, argues gingrich could more easily forge a deal because gingrich was more involved than boehner in recruiting the freshmen. >> he was timetable bring them along. he was part of their revolution in a way. speaker boehner is seen, i think, within the conference as a more moderate voice. i think he's not as trusted by the conservative elements within his -- within the republican conference. >> analysts also cited the rise of the internet, which serves some say to inflame opinion on both sides and make compromise more difficult, and the economy. the unem
you might as well go for something big that can be a game changer in temps of reducing our deficit and long-term debt. >> bret: and you still think that something big can happen. >> we do still believe that something big can happen, precisely because doing something big in many ways is just as harded as doing something small. we've said we could fall short of that goal. it may not be achievable. we could in the aftermath fight for something significant and tax and entitlement reform. and we would set something out as long as it ensures that the cloud hanging over the economy is removed and that we lift the debt selling for a substantial period of time to make sure, the uncertainty that that creates doesn't continue to stay with us and that it still achiefs significant deficit reduction. that's not an ideal outcome, but this president made it clear he's not holding out for perfections, and he understands that no party to these negotiations will get everything he or she wants. >> bret: you say the president still thinks it's possible. why then did four months ago, did you say this. >
quarter on g.d.p. growth, and that is the debate on wall street. >> i will show the big board again if we can, a lot of you will look at this and say 200 points because washington is not doing anything, that is part but it is not the majority of what is happening here. a lot of this is having to do with concerns of slow down is happening and we could revisit a serious slow down, if not a double dip, companies lime emerson saying things have turned south. i am not dismissing what is beginning on in washington but for wall street the front burner issue is the concern of the double dip. that is the reality. and, then, there is this.

scanners, that was big concern of people and also for some of the privacy advocates. jon? jon: yeah. and some of our chatters are wondering when this is going to hit the consumer market, you know, can i buy one of these things and scan anybody i want to? >> reporter: you know what, interesting? facebook is looking at it and google, also, to allow you to take a picture of someone and do an immediate google search to get any other information on them. so your chatters are up to speed, jon. jon: that is a brave new world. jamie colby, thank you. >> reporter: take care. jenna: breaking news of the day, and we have more big stories throughout the hour including a big rule anything the case of the former police sergeant who keeps losing wyomings. what -- wives. the case of drew peterson and how it could impact his murder trial. >>> also house speaker john boehner reworking his debt deal. this as the clock ticks closer to that default deadline. six days away, can a deal be struck in time? we'll go in depth just ahead.   you could save a bundle with geico's multi-policy discount. geic
-word, default. >> uh-huh. >> the big elephant in the room is downgrades. people aren't talking about what happens if we downgrade. that affects everybody watching. >> i don't trust anybody saying this stuff. i don't trust the moody people. i don't even know who they are. all these people are lousy accountants. they've never been right. >> and also, who elected moodies and standard & poor's to guide this? the onus is on the house republicans. they did their job. they passed two things. they passed a 2012 paul ryan budget actually deals with the long-term structural issues we're all worried about, and they passed cut, cap and balance, which also deals with this. cut, cap and balance is the only plan out there that can stave off moodies and standard & poor's, and yet the democrats won't take a vote on it in the senate. >> the idea of a balanced budget amendment, it ain't going to happen. you made a good point. you may not have default in the traditional sense, and moody's said it's a problem, it's a downgrade issue. the downgrade will have an immediate impact on our borrowing power. >> absol

wars. ferrets don't pollute and cats don't go on "big brother." >> some tell me this is an argument for bestial tee. is this what you said to the police in alabama whether you caught in a farm? >> in alabama an hour and a half ago on 6th avenue, wherever. >> brooke, what do you make of this? if it helps finds cures, why not? >> the slew of ethical issues that come up -- we didn't give the -- the reason he called it so grotesque is what they created deformed human embryos with obviously -- you saw howdy formed they were. the fact they were doing this in secret tells me two things. number one that scientists who are conducting these experiments think they are above us when it comes to making moral decisions. and number two it affords me absolutely no assurance. who says they are killing the em embryos after 14 days. >> i know more about you, perverted, weirdie. -- weird owe. sure, dogs don't cause wars, but president they don't invent things either. >> what do they invent? >> poop with corn in it. >> well, we all do. bill, she makes some excellent points. >> here is where i disagree.

spending. alisyn: we have a big lineup on our show to talk about the debt. republican senator lindsey graham, and jim jordan, the head of the senate committee. we are asking you today about the debt debate. if the u.s. defaults are you worried it will be bad for your family or do you still don't see how it will impact you directly. go to our web site foxnews.com/americasnewsroom. bill: in 90 minutes we had 6,000 votes online yesterday. lines are open right now. what do you think? weigh on in. alisyn. that was new polls showing mitt romney leads the pack of announced presidential candidates. 27% support romney. but it dramatically closes if sarah palin, or rick perry or rudy giuliani are included. alisyn: there is new outrage over a decision not to cover healthcare benefits for 9/11 workers stricken with cancer. defenders of the move say there is little evidence that exposure to hazardous materials at ground zero caused the cancer. >> this is an insult to our intelligence' 53 funerals. 51 were because the person died of cancer. alisyn: rick leventhal is live in the news room. >> report
: the debt debacle the threat of a credit downgrade is very real. stock sell off is very big. speaker boehner says a dirty word trying to get republicans in line. tonight, the standoff in washington. plus, the moment of the norway explosion caught on tape the blast shook the store and sent people running into the streets.

to get members to support. the big flaw in that plan he was on radio explaining it today. this select committee. who are the people? when are the cuts coming where are the cuts going to be? that was the flaw. all that aside. he's got another plan. the president has no plan. >> i was stunned they allowed the president to go to the east room by himself and give a partisan speech with no plan in place and calling on members of the public to call the members of congress. i heard today that calls were up but they weren't what the president wanted. it is saying don't cave. surprisingly the poll you just read 38% of the people who still think he's handling this well? that you don't have a plan that you can explain it. and ed henry now with fox news as a white house correspondent pressed today, pressed jay carney on why don't you have a plan? i can imagine how you explain why you don't. >> sean: we'll get into this in the next segment. it angers me now. that republicans are competing only with their own deal. the president gets to throw darts and say no, no, no. where is his leadership stuart
boehner, to get a big deal. now, boehner backed off my association to try and do it, but he did try to get a 4 trillion dollar deal and knew he couldn't get it from the caucus and by the way, obama couldn't get it from his. so, what they basically did, take it back where it belongs, which is in the congress. because this is the bill that's been voted on. >> it's going to end anyway, and it's going to end and they're agreeing, mandatory committee and it's going to be over and we'll talk about fun things. >> and i don't know if it'll get enough votes in the house of representatives. >> i do. >> this committee basically unconstitutionally removes from congress the ability to make decisions with respect to paying money. i'm saying unconstitutionally, the constitution says only the congress did far be it from me to challenge you go the constitution. >> paul ryan, has endorsed the republican plan and when he endorsed through the house of representatives, it gefs comfort they can go forward. >> also having worked in the house of representatives, the speaker is so smart. he's fot going to bring a
is because he hasn't been tough enough, and there wasn't a big distinction between him and president obama, and he's showing that once again now. martha: all right. talk to me, you know, when you look at this politically, "the wall street journal" basically said this morning if tea party encourages its members and representatives on capitol hill to hold tight and not give any ground in this, they're basically handing the presidency to barack obama again in 2012. what say you? >> what are we talking about? are we talking about who's going to be our next president, or are we talking about fixing the problems that face america? we need to quit worrying about the next elections and worry about whether we're going to survive financially. and there are plans that could do it, there are other plans that can't, but nobody is looking at the overspending, looking at directly in the eye and saying we have to stop this. we spend over $4 billion a day in borrowed money. that's enough to build two and a half space shuttles a day. martha: wow. well, that's an eye-opener. jenny beth martin, thank you very
was apparently overly optimistic about the cuts. that's a big problem. number two, he has 90 something new freshmen republicans who don't want to go along with him unless there's a balanced budget amendment in it. he has a rob lem internal lip. not -- he has a problem internally, so now what? >> he's got a problem internally because he didn't have to reinvent any wheel here. i do respect speaker boehner's effort trying to negotiate with joel low as he characterizes negotiating with president obama. the internal problem he has is reventing the wheel in the 11th hour when we had cut, cap and balance that passed the house. we don't need to retreat and wave the white flag because the senate is saying they won't allow a vote on cut, cap and balance. now we have to think up another plan. no, we didn't have to do that the cut, cap and balance plan is the right plan. because evidently, there are enough members of congress who are insisting the debt ceiling will be raised. i don't want to see it raises. they are saying it will be. if it going to be raised we better get something out of it. what we
